Don’t worry I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth!  I know it has been a while since I’ve blogged, but I’m back and ready to go.  I’ve got lots of beautiful sessions from the last few months to share with you, so stay tuned!

To say I’m looking forward to Josh and Emily’s August of 2014 wedding would be an understatement!  I knew as soon as I met Emily that we were going to have fun together. But, when we started talking about their engagement session I realized that was an understatement.  For their engagement pictures they wanted to go to Coeur d’Alene around the boardwalk and the lake.  Coeur d’Alene is a very special location for them- it is where they had one of their first dates and where they got engaged!  I love that it was so personal to them.  As Emily and I were talking and getting everything set up she mentioned at the end of the session she’d love to get a shot of them jumping the lake.  I immediately latched on to the idea and asked if they’d be open to doing a whole series in the water.  She agreed and we just hoped they didn’t freeze!  The day of the session it ended up being close to 90 degrees in mid-September, so the jump in the lake was definitely a great way to cool off.  At their Image Premier some of their favorite images ended up being the ones in the lake.  Emily was too cute as she told me that all she had envisioned was the one picture and a quick jump.  She was so excited that she had listened to me and ended up these amazingly romantic photos in the water!

This Sunday, my husband and I will celebrate our 12th Anniversary!  I can’t believe it has been 12 years!  The other night I was cooking dinner in our beautiful home that we built (that my husband worked so hard to help build!), the kids were playing together, and I was suddenly filled up with an incredible thankfulness.  Never 12 years ago would I have imagined that this would be my life.  There are so many things that I thought would be different, so many things that I would have never guessed possible, but now I’m just filled with an overwhelming thankfulness for everything we’ve been through and have.

This year I have had a privilege of working with quite a few couples in love.  It is one of my favorite things to document and capture.  There is nothing like capturing that beautiful moment where you can tell that all that matters is the person beside them.

I am so excited to share a sneak peek at Rachel and Mark’s Greenbluff wedding.  They got married at Mrs. Kalin’s Barn on Greenbluff the end of August.  If you are looking for a gorgeous wedding venue in the Spokane area I highly recommend you check out Mrs. Kalin’s Barn!  It is absolutely stunning from the white barn type reception area, to the little chandelier hanging in the ceremony area, the flowers, the little orchard, the bridal ready area, the cute little patio…!  With such a gorgeous location you don’t have to have a ton of decorations, but all of Rachel’s little touches were perfect- the baby’s breath bouquets the bridesmaids carried, the shot gun shell boutonnieres, the gold sparkles, the striped accents…..

So, what happens when you put together a gorgeous couple, drop dead beautiful dress, stunning location, amazing family and friends, and all the little touches to finish it up….. a fairy tale wedding celebrating the love of two very special people.

Terissa was chosen as the recipient of the Bright Light Award for the Class of 2014.  It was a unanimous decision by all the business owners involved.  She was nominated by her mom, and will be graduating next year from East Valley High School.  Her story, her courage, and the decisions she has made captured us all!  When we choose a winner we have no idea what they look like, who they are, or what their personality is like.  One by one as we met Terissa we were all amazed that not only did she deserve to win based on the criteria of what we were looking at, she was also as sweet as could be, and absolutely drop dead gorgeous!

As a winner of the Bright Light Recipient Terissa received a free haircut from Jenn Barlos at Design Studio 13, a gift certificate from Finders Keepers II to do some shopping prior to her session, airbrush makeup application from Shasta Hankins, and of course her session with me.

For her session Terissa decided she wanted to spend some of her time at the Latah Creek in Spokane.  I love this little hidden spot… so fun and gorgeous!  Going in the creek is not for the faint of heart as Terissa proved after she took a little spill into the creek, but more on that later!  I accused her of just trying to cool off on the 95 degree evening! lol  After that we went to another one of my favorite places.  This spot offers such a unique setting for anyone that is wanting something posh, sophisticated and romantic.
